For a small price (8.50 for kids and adults alike) you can get into some really fun activities. From the nola-specific stuff like a kid-sized shipping boat and Jackson square where your toddler can replace the shady president in his statue, this place is great. Near other museums, the location is good too. It's not as amazing as the Indianapolis children's museum that I grew up with but it's a fine one for the region.
Have had a membership for years. My son loves this place and the events they put on year round are great. Great place to take the kids for a couple of hours. Staff is very friendly and interacts with the kids. Place is always clean and toys in good shape.
Love This museum for a nice family outing. The kids and adults have a great time playing and actually learning as well! Favorite part is the Grocery store and playing Boat Captain.
Love this place, probably more than the kids. I wish they still had the newsroom for older kids. Still a learning "hit" for children. My grandchildren live it.
Good source of amusement for young kids. A few drawbacks include: no on-site restaurant or cafe so you have to dine somewhere nearby if your child gets hungry. They do have vending machines inside though. Also, no on-site parking but you can park at the lot next door for only $5. Overall your child will likely have a great time here. If your child is very active, they may not enjoy it as much because it's more of a calmer setting.
We had our annual Law school Ball at the Children's Museum and wow! Dealing with Jennifer Simon and her staff was so incredibly easy and they accommodated anything we needed. We had over 300 guests in attendance, all in their mid 20's - 40's and everyone LOVED it. It brought them back to being kids. It was such a pleasure to have our event here and if you are looking to host an event at a fun, different venue that has a great staff to work with, look no further. Thank you LCM for making our event a blast, even for adults!!
Loved the whole experience! I took my 13 year old and my 3 year old. They both enjoyed it very much. Decent admission fee and good prices in the gift shop.
Great place for toddlers. For those who won t stop touching everything is ideal. Many things to touch and explore in a safe environment.
There’s no parking we had to pay $15 to park 2 blocks from the location there was a lady on her phone who was the parking attendant and she had a nasty attitude cause I asked her what the fee was The museum is kinda old there’s 3 floors however only 2 floors is the actual museum the 2nd floor is for clerical offices for employees only so level 1 and 3 are for kids kinda okay I’ll give this museum a 7 out of 10 it’s $10 per person kid or adult so I paid $20 for me and my daughter you can run the whole museum in about 3 hours there’s a cool shopping place and restaurant for kids
Awesome place. Stairs are wide open for kids to fall down. Just keep an eye on your kids. Other museums don't have this problem.
We visited New Orleans for 3 weeks and actually bought a membership here because it pays for itself so quickly. I have a 2 year old and our hotel was a 7 minute walk to this place. They have a special area on the 3rd floor got children 3 and under but the other areas are great too. It can be busy first thing in the morning but the afternoon is pretty low key. They have a snack area downstairs with vending machines so they keep it simple but there are so many restaurants around that it makes sense to only have small snacks there. Their toy store is awesome. People here are really friendly and helpful.
Having been to several children museums around the country, this one really stood out. We brought our 2 year old daughter, and it was perfect for her. I'd say the 2-5 year old range might be the sweet spot for this place. So many interactive displays that let the kids feel, build, and experience. Really impressed by the story time area and overall variety of activities. Our little munchkin got wore out before she could do even 50% of what was offered.
We loved this place. A great way to spend a morning. The place is huge and we didn't even get to all the spaces. My 2.5 year old especially enjoyed the toddler area and the bubbles table. We were also there for reading time which happens in a cute fake porch area. If it weren't for nap time we would have stayed all day.
I had just as much fun as my kids- maybe more. Interactive and interesting. Fair pricing. A ' must do' if visiting NOLA with children.
I have heard GREAT things about this place, but have never been. The kids TRULY enjoyed just about everything they had to offer. A great break from the same ol child activities
I think this is the third best children's museum we've been too. We liked it and everywhere we went was our favorite spot to be. Story time was really well done and nice to have. The painting outside the bathroom was perfect for this place. We would definitely come back if we visit again.
Great fun and games for kids of all ages. Enjoyed the import and export knowledge in the Port of New Orleans area. Upstairs is where it's at. Mini Winn Dixie for kids to shop, check out, and restock items.
